Vista Trail


Dogs (leashed)

The Vista Trail at the Usery Mountain Regional Park in Mesa, Arizona is a moderate 0.5 mile one-way trail that leads to the top of the Merkle Hills with views of Pass Mountain (aka Scarface), the Phoenix mountain arrow sign, and distant mountain ranges.

You can pick up the trailhead for this hike from the Merkle Trail - from either the south or north side of the loop.

The hike starts out by ascending the Merkle Hills and after just a tenth to a quarter mile, you already have spectacular views. The trail then dips down between the Merkle Hills and then back up to the 2nd peak before descending back down.

You can take the Merkle Trail back to parking or hike this out-and-back to increase your distance to a 1 mile hike.
